The Importance of Replacing Missing Teeth
As much as we try to take care of our dental health, tooth loss happens. Dentists have mastered the art of replacing lost teeth & their toolkits are full of solutions to fit your specific needs.
Man Smiling OutsideIt is important to understand that replacing missing or rotten teeth is not just about looks. It’s important for keeping your mouth healthy in the long run. Tooth loss can cause your remaining teeth to shift out of place and it may become difficult for you to bite, chew and speak. The resulting bone shifting can even affect your overall facial structure.
What Is A Dental Bridge?
Getting a dental bridge is more involved than your average checkup. If you’ve gotten a dental crown in the past, getting a bridge will be a pretty similar experience for you. It will take more than one appointment to prepare your teeth & place the bridge. If you need any dental work done on the supporting teeth, such as a filling or root canal, this must happen beforehand.
